Stream computer screen to Apple TV?

Is it possible to stream my computer screen, not movies, etc, to a 2nd gen Apple TV?

I would also be interested in the answer to this question, though based on some preliminary research it sounds like the answer is no. That would be a great feature.

I've also thought this would be a cool feature. I imagine it could be done with a jailbroken atv.

Currently no.

What are you wanting to accomplish by having this capability.

Can you even stream video directly from a Macbook to ATV2, or do you need to use an iPhone/iPad?
